Yes I couldn't wait anymore. Your contributions have been very appreciated, Thank you with all your help.

I love my VRSF FMIC, I get tons of compliments of how it looks and I've never had an issue with intake temps or coolant temps since putting it in.

Some more pics

Re: Mark's Talon

Went up to BIR over the weekend for Proving Grounds and ran in the 1/4 mile. This is the first time i've ever launched this car or been to a track, so I was definitely nervous. Had 2 problems I gotta address before going out again, the first was having an issue going from 1st to 2nd in the upper rpms especially if I tried with NLTS (probably driver error) and second is needing wider, better tires.. spun all 4 near every time running my 215/60r16 kelly explorers. lol.
Ended up running just shy of the 11's and hit a 12.1 and a 12.0 overall it was one of the best experiences ever and i'm hooked.

Re: Mark's Talon

Well the tear down has begun. Started with the dash removal. Got every connector on both harnesses labeled and ready to be completely redone/ tucked.. Debating fuse box in glove box or center council. Trans and engine will come out this week. All that's left is to remove the Trans and engine mount. Till then..

Have fun doing it. Hated wiring after I was done doing the Evo then the Spyders engine bay harness.

You still have part of your engine stand over here.

Re: Mark's Talon

Yea figured I'd give it a shot I have 6 months to come up with something, if I mess up I can find a replacement or get the harness they make..I've always wanted a clean bay and I don't think it's just going to happen.
The plan as of now is to completely redo the "engine" harness and try to keep most of the "Chassis" harness intact with slight modification to make either location work. So here goes nothing I guess haha.

Yes mark, when can I grab it?

Re: Mark's Talon

Forgot to even mention what I was doing I got so excited with tearing it all down. Anyway I am building a new engine from valve cover to oil pan with the block including Wiseco hd pistons and either Manley or Eagle Rods and suiting it with a bigger turbo. Along with that I will also be doing a full wire tuck and relocating the fuse box as mentioned above to whats now looking more like the center council.

I started to tear it down last week. Removed the Engine/ Trans, Both wiring harnesses, Dash and all interior.
I've been picking away at the engine harness a little bit each day. Heres where I am at now!

Re: Mark's Talon

Decided on the fuse box in the glove box. Got the interior "chassis" harness just about routed, will be finishing that up today and tomorrow. All the wires that are lengthened or shortened are reconnected using weatherproof butt connectors and no solder. This weekend I will put the dash back into the car. Pretty pumped on how it's turning out so far.

Pic is or the fuse box I'm glove box, still need to make a mounting bracket for it.

Re: Mark's Talon

Well the harness is done until I can get the engine back in, I think it turned out looking awesome, now just hope it all works properly.
Measured the oil clearances and they are very tight, but within spec.
Picked up a new block as well thanks to John (pushit2.0). Smoothed out the oil galleys and de-burred it to all my tools could reach, thanks man!
Going to run ARP on the rods/ mains and head studs as well. Still debating the regular ARP, H11's or L19's. Also thinking of running a Kiggly HLA Pressure Regulator any opinions? (will be running lots of boost)
Will also be grabbing a 2g head from Tyler here soon.

I have run arp standard bolts to 30lbs and have have my l19's running around 42lbs with no problems. Kiggley is a great choice.
